OnePlus 3 and 3T users who are part of the Beta program for OxygenOS, should be receiving an OTA update. This update brings with it a number of updates, changes and bugfixes, but the most notable changes come to certain UI elements and the display. Before you go ahead and update your smartphone, you should know that beta updates tend to have unforeseen bugs. Additionally, you’ll only get the Open Beta update if you’re already part of the program. If you’re not and would like to get onto the Open Beta, then you will receive OTA updates only for the Beta updates and not for the final OS build. This may want to make you consider getting off the Open Beta program, in which case, you’re going to have to clean flash your device, meaning all data on the phone will be wiped.
If you’re in the Beta program or are looking to get on to it, here is everything that is new in this latest update.
This new update does bring a number notable changes, including a reworked colour profile for the display which now is closer to the default sRGB colour profile. Additionally, the stability of Parallel apps have been improved and loading time of images inside the Gallery app has been reduced. The official forum post by OnePlus that announces the availability of the update also mentions that some users may not be able to turn on the flashlight on the phone right after the update, but this will be fixed with a simple reboot of the phone.
